Description:
London: William Kimber, 1980. The stories are subtly linked by overlapping characters and by the atmosphere of Cornwall itself which pervades the plots, making a remarkable and compelling collection. Just to touch on some of the stories: 'Tomorrow's Moon' deals with the love of a middle-aged woman for a younger man; 'Red Letter Day' presents elderly people approaching Christmas, and in 'Come In Burglar' a school-girl faces a crisis in unexpected isolation. The influence of the supernatural, so strongly present in the Celtic dominated territory provides the bases for a number of the other stories. A fresh bright book (showing no ownership markings) in an illustrated price-intact dust jacket from a sketch by Feliks Topolski.. First British Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Near Fine.

Description:
Boston: Houghton,Mifflin Company, 1976. Nigel Ash is a traveler alone, a fighter pilot, a bush pilot after that, a man who has always flown a little too close to the wind, a ruthless man with a temper to kill. But after illness he recuperates in a log cabin lent to him by his brother and sister-in-law, Lorna, and another side of Ash appears..... As the currents of his temperment ebb and flow, Ash at last finds some purpose and meaning in his "botched-up" life. As in so many of David Walker's novels, the landscape, the birds and the animals are exquisitely depicted. This is a most gripping and exciting story, but more than that it is a superb study of a man of our troubled times: one who arouses feelings of liking and suspicion, of admiration and censure. Black cloth boards, lime color title print to front board and spine. No ownership markings. illustrated pictorial still-bright dust jacket by Ned Glattauer. Price intact. A nice clean copy..

Each realizes that from now on not only his achievements but every aspect of his private life will be bathed in the glare of international publicity. All six must examine their weaknesses. They are the major actors. Above all, this novel is a vivid behind-the-scenes anatomy of the Prize itself: how the Nobel jurists secretly reach their decisions; how attempts are made to influence them; how the awards have changed the winner's lives for good or evil.
